Strawberry tiramisu

Welshcakes Limoncello, the author of the wonderful Sicily Scene blog and one of the best cooks in Sicily, gave me an excellent recipe for strawberry tiramisu which was very well received by my guests for lunch on Saturday:

300g strawberries
7 teasp. caster sugar
3 egg yolks
500g mascarpone cheese
1 packet of sponge fingers

Hull the strawberries , halve them and sprinkle with 3 teaspoons of the sugar. Beat the remaining sugar into the egg yolks. Add the mascarpone and most of the strawberries. Mix well. Arrange half the sponge fingers in a deep dish. Slosh some Grand Marnier/sweet sherry/other liqueur over them. Spread half of the mascarpone mixture over them. Add another layer of sponge fingers sloshed with more liqueur , then the rest of the mascarpone mixture. Decorate the top with the reserved strawberries, orange slices, flaked chocolate or however you like.
